The World Bank Group works with a broad range of stakeholders to generate reform consensus, ensure sustainable outcomes, and facilitate productive private sector participation for sustainable development. This approach is integrated into client facing programs through public-private dialogue (PPD), a structured engagement mechanism that aims to bring together all relevant stakeholders, in a balanced and inclusive manner, to assess, prioritize issues, and achieve sustainable results.

The following Quick Guides provide an overview and necessary tools to integrate PPD into projects. The Guides are divided into four modules:

Module 1: Scoping Mission

Module 2: Stakeholder Mapping for Engagement

Module 3: Communicating Public-Private Dialogue

Module 4: Public-Private Dialogue in Fragile and Conflict-Affected Situations

This paper appraises the development of Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in the United Republic of Tanzania in terms of trends, policies and programmes. The original study selected four PPP ventures in the country, namely, at the Kibaha Sugarcane Research Institute; the Tanzania Agrodealer Sup- port Program; the Tea Research Institute of Tanzania (tea research programme); and private forestry. In each case study, characterization, development, management and operation, and future developmental outcomes of the PPPs were specifically assessed.

The methodology employed includes interviews with key informants and questionnaires. Findings show that all PPPs assessed were established to address inefficiencies that existed in the previ- ous system of service delivery and the dissatisfaction experienced by beneficiaries. The old system was unable to attain the desired goals of providing better research and extension services; better and timely input to meet the expectations of stakeholders; and the overall goal of increasing farmers’ and producers’ incomes from agricultural and forest production systems. Moreover, research and extension services were provided by the Government of Tanzania, which found it more and more difficult to meet its financial obligations in support of these ventures.

After the establishment of PPP arrangements, particularly in the tea sector, service delivery improved considerably, resulting in the establishment of similar PPPs for other crops such as coffee, when the Tanzania Coffee Research Institute (TaCRI) came into being. It is therefore recommended that PPPs be established in areas where service delivery is purely public, and where other stakeholders are ready to contribute for the mutual benefit of the industry and the sector in general.

This study explores the status, arrangements and operation of specific agribusiness PPPs in the United Republic of Tanzania, focusing on those that are ongoing and relatively advanced.

The purpose of this study in the United Republic of Tanzania was to:

  • ƒappraise the national development context, trends and policies as influencing the rel- evance of and need for agribusiness PPPs;
  • ƒ characterize and appraise four specific agri- business PPPs;
  • ƒ gain insight on and draw lessons from chal- lenges and specific issues to be considered in the development and implementation of agribusiness PPPs; and
  • ƒ prepare a country report on agribusiness PPPs.

The main objectives of the study were to: ƒ

  • characterize PPP arrangements; ƒ
  • assess the development of PPP arrangements; ƒ
  • assess the management and operation of PPP
  • arrangements; and ƒ assess the performance and development out-
  • comes of the PPPs.

In Africa, five countries were selected where the PPPs that promote agribusiness were reviewed. The purpose of the reviews was to learn how these PPPs were created and managed. Uganda is well- suited to be included in these African countries since it has agriculture as its economic backbone, and Uganda’s public policy focuses on agribusiness development. The Government of Uganda has embarked on enhancing PPPs to develop the agricultural industry. To this end, Uganda has experienced progress in the sector and overall economy.

This country appraisal looked at the development and implementation of agribusiness PPPs, both through literature reviews and interviews. Four public-private partnerships were studied in different sub-sectors: sunflower, fruit, seed supply, and oil palm processing. With the exception of the palm oil production partnership, the public-private partnerships studied in this report were between a single public actor and a single agribusiness enterprise. To concretize the partnerships, memorandums of understanding (MoU) were used.

This study examines the potential benefits of public–private partnerships and attempts to anticipate and mitigate potential problems that may appear in the future. The goal of this study is to obtain knowl- edge on agribusiness partnerships and to draw lessons from them in order to provide recommendations for the Indonesian Government.

The study uses a multiple case-study approach to obtain in-depth knowledge of the experiences of existing public–private partnerships in Indonesia. The case studies were selected through a review of secondary information, preliminary direct interviews with key informants and discussions with FAO officers. The five cases selected for appraisal in this report are:

  1. Oil Palm Development Plasma Programme under the Perusahaan Inti Rakyat Perkebunan–Kredit Koperasi Primer untuk Anggotanya (PIR–KKPA) Scheme;
  2. Rice Breeder Seeds Partnership Programme;
  3. Jatropha Curcas for Bioenergy Project;
  4. Sweet Pepper Pilot Supply Chain Project (HORTIN Project);
  5. LM3 Programme (a development programme for religious institutions in the agribusiness sector).

In response to the increasing interest in public-private partnerships (PPPs) as an instrument for enhancing investment, risk-sharing and addressing other constraints in pursuit of sustainable and inclusive agribusiness and rural development, in 2010 FAO undertook a global appraisal of agribusiness PPPs implemented in 15 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
This web page provides readers with direct access to the summary tables of 70 cases from 15 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America that demonstrate the application of public private partnerships in the areas of value chain development, innovation in science and technology, market infrastructure and business development services.
The profile and details of these cases act as a complementary set of resource materials to supplement the 15 national reports (available here), and an overall synthesis document which analyses lessons learnt on factors influencing the success and failure of agribusiness PPPs as well as the drivers, governance and enabling environments for increasing investment in inclusive agri-food sector development.

Agriculture in Africa is not sustainable because average yields have been stagnating for decades due to underinvestment, especially in the development of agricultural markets, crop improvement and the sustainable management of agricultural systems. Low public sector funding for agricultural research and lack of incentives for the private sector to operate in areas where there is no market largely explain the yield gap in many food-importing developing countries. Yet, there are effective ways in which the public and the private sector could work together and jointly improve agricultural sustainability in poor countries. The public sector provides a favorable institutional environment for the development of agricultural markets and investment in rural infrastructure, facilitates local business development and funds research with local relevance. The private sector, in return, brings its considerable expertise in product development and deployment. This article illustrates how new forms of public-private partnerships (PPPs) for agricultural development can work in challenging environments. It discusses three promising examples of PPPs in which the Syngenta Foundation for Sustainable Agriculture (SFSA) is actively involved, and shows that an experimental approach can sometimes be more effective than social planning in efforts to achieve sustainable agriculture.
